Newb post not sure this is the right forum mods pls move if wrong - thanx

Just going through Novice Ninja ... slowly.

Get a warning: "The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured, some extended features have been deactivated. To find out why click here."

All OK except at the end:


$cfg['Servers'][$i]['users'] ... not OK [ Documentation ]
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['usergroups'] ... not OK [ Documentation ]
Configurable menus: Disabled

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['navigationhiding'] ... not OK [ Documentation ]
Hide/show navigation items: Disabled

The "Not OK"s and "Disabled" are in rted so I am concerned!!!

Grateful for any help.(Not sure if this is the config.inc.php file it is talking about or not.

I DID try search about six times but could not get a strict search to work and when I triede to limit search to the last year I go a crash (dump below).

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer :-):
